The station on a separate right of way near Interstate 10, the San Bernardino Freeway. The station is located in the city of El Monte. The entrance to the station is located at the corner of Santa Anita Ave and Ramona Boulevard. Just west of this station the transitway moves off the separate right of way and move into the middle of Interstate 10.
